Carols and Readings with Sound & Light. Christmas Eve Service 24th Dec. 2019.
The church was full to bursting on Christmas Eve for our annual carol service, with Ruth Edge playing the organ and the Weaver Quintet accompanying her. As the readings by villagers and members of the congregation were heard, interspersed with favourite carols, the lighting effects changed with colours, sparkles and stars. Videos of the Annunciation and Star of Bethlehem appeared and the quintet played a Selection of Old Carols by Gustav Holst. The Rev. Anne led prayers and gave the final Christmas Blessing before the service ended with Images of Christ on the big screen, extra lighting effects and ‘Who wants to Live Forever’ sung by Collabro. Thank you to all who came, from both near and far, to join us in our celebration of the Birth of Christ.
